Dictionary Term

Data Storage


Data storage can be defined as any location in which data resides and is not in transit, or the act of keeping any type of data archived. However, today the phrase is almost synonymous with the storage of digital data on a computer, housed as memory, most often on Random Access Memory (RAM), or digital data housed in the cloud.
